More info

Cabernet Franc accounts for the largest vineyard area of red grapes planted in the Finger Lakes wine region. Unlike many red varieties, it can produce good fruit in cooler climates; as long as the canopy is managed so that enough sun falls on the grapes to fully ripen them. The relatively recent glacial geology of the region has, by scouring out lakes and piling up and mixing soils, created plenty of interesting locations for Cabernet Franc vineyards. Hand-harvest grapes are employed for this elegant, balanced wine. They are fermented in open-topped tanks; with a daily punching down of the cap and pumping over, tannins are gently removed from the skins. The wine is aged for about 18 months in European and American oak barrels. The nose shows ripe blueberry, cherry and raspberry, with floral and cedar notes. Fresh with balancing tannins it finishes smooth and velvety.
